Kansas City rapper, Sir Adams, and DJ Travis Read have a new record out on bandcamp titled Writer’s Block. The project is mixed up by Read and Sir Adams holds down rap vocals throughout. Be sure to check it out if you like honest lyrics and solid beats (D/Will, The Awesome Sound, Ghost 816 and Elias Abid hold down more than a few tracks on the album). By the way, one of the most coveted female vocalists/musicians in the city right now, Nicolette Paige, is featured on the record (along with The Abnorm, Dom Chronicles and others). Below, we’ve embedded one song (“Stoner Girl”) from Sir Adams’ new album which flexes Paige’s songwriting skills and incredible vocal capabilities in the chorus. You will be hearing more about Nicolette Paige, sooner rather than later. We will be doing a “Featured Artist of The Month” interview with both her and legendary KC-based producer, Don Juan, for October. The two have some wonderful ear candy on the way, trust. - Chris Mills

*Writer's Block* is a spectacular, languid piece of smooth, cassette-tape, cruising, soul music. The genius of Sir Adams is perhaps how the mere tone of his voice acknowledges an existential struggle. His nod to something beyond the mere representation or desire for riches & fame--and goddamn then the bass drops. The production on "Block" plays out like it was made for 6X9's in an old Cutlass--that one with the T-tops. It's nod to 70's soul dripping sticky and sweet like it was bathed twice in smooth and then spray painted with cool.

Adams has cool in abundance & on "Block" he is generous with it...letting it spill out on the speakers with Jackson Pollock like artistry.
This was an album made with a dual dynamic: The Friday night cruise with the street lights oscillating across the chrome
AND ALSO
For audiophiles to throw on the headphones and enjoy the mix because there are moments of audio brilliance that prefer to shine through when your ears are encased in some old-school, muff-style headphones.
(Reviewer's note: Listening as I write this on some *beats*)

Adams has never been smoother with his flow. His singles were fantastic but left one with the feeling that a full-length would allow him to stretch and let his deep tone and rhymes breath. He seizes the moment and releases one of KC's top albums of 2013 (good thing we gave him a nod in our "Best of" list)

"Writer's Block" at heart is a deep, soulful, minor masterpiece made with delicate care & mindfulness. The prevalent mood ripped from a misunderstood Batman villain's diary. The smattering of strange pieces from an artistic mind involving itself in reality and flirting with the surreal.
A dissertation on a man's struggle against his demons---manifestations of pain & pleasure toppling into one another. Adams is smart & it shows. Take a listen to the sparse macabre miuet of "Wild Thing" or the jagged-jazz flow of "Dream" & you can hear the musician as a craftsman.
A true artist emerging. - Lucy McPherson

What makes Sir Adams so exciting is his penchant for sonic texturing. "Moments of the Past" has all the super cool feeling of ethereal daydreaming. The production by Milkdrop puts Adams inside a piece of music where he flourishes...weaving lugubrious, stoner-speed, smooth-ass rhymes inside a harrowing amount of reverb & this time with a tinge of optimism.
The message that pervades is one of survival. An image of Adams as Sisyphus, rolling that boulder up that mountain only to watch it roll back...and then starting over.
He sings "I'll be coming up, cause I'll be coming down..."
But you get a little sunshine too.
It's the artist against the struggle & it's Adams' best track yet.
A minor key masterpiece you can put on repeat. - Lucy McPherson

The new track by Sir Adams is a gothic and surreal journey into the hip-hop macabre. It’s intensely dark and full of guts. A short journey into what appears to be an inevitable, hip hop concept album steeped in gothic imagery and sonic weirdness. Adams is best in this zone; thinking outside the box & preying on the dark side of the human brain. - William Chaffin

Best Thing About Monday
By Lucy McPherson

Sir Adams "Stoner Girl"

This week's "Best Thing" is a blazing anthem of adoration for girls who like to...well...blaze. Or maybe it's about ladies who can't pay attention to a man who isn't holding some weed. Either way it's a smooth r&b & hip-hop crossbreed that exemplifies the best of Kansas City soul music. It's strength is in it's delivery; it's velvety groove embedded in a magnificent hook.And although the staff at Kill Your TV KC is a pretty square group of nerdy writers/artists /musicians we can appreciate the occasional ode to mind altering substances. Since the birth of rock & roll...the sex and the drugs have walked hand in hand...no? What's our point? Whether you claim green or not---"Stoner Girl" is just a fucking great track. A jam for your 2013 summer mix...
We're taking a toke (metaphorically) and passing it along to you - Lucy McPherson- KillYourTV Kc
